What Drydock says.  :)

But I've actually never lubed a BP pistol bullet.  I've always squirted a blob of butter flavored Crisco over the first two rounds on the left side of the loaded cylinder.  Never a fouling issue in 22 years.  I only use (soft) lubed bullets for rifle rounds.

Armaments, chapter 1,  paragraph 7 : "And yeah, thou shalt use such water based lubricants upon thine projectiles such as the lord has provided, and verily in such quantities as to render such fouling than might occur soft, and pleasant to the touch.  And thus you may shoot the whole of the day, and suffer no degradation in thine accuracy.  In thy mercy."

I use SPG lube, but the 200 grain bullets have just one lube groove, and apparently one is not enough. I'd have to step up to a 250 grain bullet to get 2 lube grooves, and that just seems like over-kill for CAS.

I think one lube groove is fine for a pistol round.

I use this 'un in short cases:  http://www.accuratemolds.com/bullet_detail.php?bullet=45-220R

I had Tom at accurate make it without the heel. 

I'm also fond of this whomper in the big Colt case:  http://www.accuratemolds.com/bullet_detail.php?bullet=45-250J
